Accessibility means that as many people as possible can use online services as easily as possible.
Further information about the Web Accessibility Directive and accessibility is available at saavutettavuusvaatimukset.fi, a website maintained by the Regional State Administrative Agency for Southern Finland.
This accessibility statement, last updated on 26 October 2022, concerns the pelastustoimi.fi website. The website is subject to the requirements of the Act on the Provision of Digital Services. Under the Act, public online services must be accessible.
Status of the accessibility of the digital service
The pelastustoimi.fi website largely meets the accessibility requirements.
An accessibility audit of the service was carried out in spring 2022. The shortcomings identified in the audit have been corrected for the most part, and the remaining ones are in the process of being corrected. Changes and corrections that require platform updates, publication system updates or operating system updates will be made by the system suppliers. The aim is to make them as quickly as possible.
The website also contains links to inaccessible files, notifications and forms that have been used by rescue departments for years. The amount of work required to repair them is really high. To remedy these, the rescue services are running a national e-service project that will be integrated into the online service pelastustoimi.fi. Current schedule estimate 2024-2025.
